Why has this changed title ? I read a book called "lollipop shoes" which is a much better title.

Joanne Harris THE GIRL WITH NO SHADOW is the US title of THE LOLLIPOP SHOES. It wasn't my decision to publish it under a different name, but that of the US publisher.
Deborah White I believe the Americans do not use the word 'lollipop'. (You know, like the way they call jam jelly etc.) Remember the film The Madness of King George? The rumour is that it was supposed to be The Madness of King George III but it was believed the Americans would think it was a sequel! So presumably that's why it was changed. The Lollipop Shoes is a much better title.
